One of my favorite weekend rituals is enjoying delicious bagels. Come Saturday morning, you can catch me with a bagel and a coffee in hand (and likely a huge smile on my face). As you can imagine, whenever I take a trip to New York City, I always have a bagel from one of my favorite shops. But when I’m away, I can still get the taste of an authentic NYC bagel delivered to my door, thanks to Just Bagels, an NYC-based kettle-boiled bagel company.

These bagels have the perfect texture — they’re soft, yet crunchy. “It was love at first bite when I tried this bagel at QVC’s Foodie Fest,” says commerce editorial assistant Morgan Pryor, who recently tested them out herself. “With most bagels, I have to slather them in cream cheese, but the flavors were so strong that it was completely unnecessary. The density was just right, and it was fluffy and easy to bite into, with no toughness at all. The focaccia Parmesan was the biggest standout. SEO Editor Sarah and I both gasped out loud when we first tasted it. Enough said!”

If you’re looking for mouth-watering bagels that can be delivered to your doorstep, Just Bagels is a great option. Grab a 24-pack of sweet or savory bagels while they’re on sale right now!

What Is Just Bagels Kettle Boiled Bagels?

These bagels are authentic New York. They’re made with no artificial flavors or preservatives, they’re kettle-boiled for the perfect chew that’s crunchy yet soft, and they ship fresh — what more could you ask for? There’s no need to hunt for the perfect bagel again! We spoke to the founder of Just Bagels, Cliff Nordquist, who says anyone who knows him knows that “everything” is his favorite flavor, but they’re all good. “When you have a bagel with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and is peanut-free, tree nut-free, kosher, non-GMO, boiled, and aged … how could it be better?” he continued. “And made in New York? It’s quality goods. Not many people do those.”

The brand started selling on QVC five years ago, and it’s been a success ever since. Available in savory, sweet, or a combination of the two (12 sweet, 12 savory), these bagels come in a pack of 24 with flavor options including cinnamon, blueberry, focaccia Parmesan, and, Nordquist’s favorite, everything. Try them for yourself (at a discount!) to experience their mouth-watering taste and texture. They’re better than the ones from my favorite NYC shop!
